    A couple of side questions.

    I'm curious what your idling amps are with each stage of the rpc fired up. Not starting amps, just the idling amps. The amps to incoming single phase L1 and L2.

    In my previous post pics, what I had labeled utility, I was just simplifying for single phase service. I have a single phase service panel in the shop, with a 40 or 50 amp breaker for my current rpc....

    I have a 1942 South Bend 2H turret lathe. The design of your tool post is very similar. Not sure if South Bend made their own or not, but fairly sure mine was original to the machine.

    I wish I was that smart, I'm just lucky to have it stamped "oil". :D

    To show you how smart I am, I dropped my flat head screw into the chip pan, more precisely, somewhere in the chips in the chip...

    Usually if a two voltage capable motor was rewired for a single voltage, they might change the tag. Doesn't mean it was re-wired for either high or low exclusive, but possible.

    I don't know 9's at all, and in looking at some parts and pieces previous, I think they do some things different than a 16".

    Any thoughts on a 20hp idler with a 15hp control box ? Motor is 1200 rpm. Thinking I'll use a pony motor to spin it up to speed before hitting rpc start button.

    Once started, any problem starting...
